Ketamine Inhibits Monoamine Transporters Expressed in Human Embryonic Kidney 293 Cells
The result suggests that the ketamine‐induced inhibition of monoamine transporters might contribute to its psychotomimetic and sympathomimetic effects through potentiating monoaminergic neurotransmission. Expand
Practical Issues in Bispectral Analysis of Electroencephalographic Signals
It is concluded that 3 min of monitoring are required to obtain reliable and reproducible bicoherence values. Expand
Effects of crystalloid and colloid preload on blood volume in the parturient undergoing spinal anesthesia for elective Cesarean section.
The result indicates that the augmentation of blood volume with preloading, regardless of the fluid used, must be large enough to result in a significant increase in cardiac output for effective prevention of hypotension. Expand
The Effects of Propofol, Isoflurane, and Sevoflurane on Oxygenation and Shunt Fraction During One-Lung Ventilation
Propofol improved oxygenation and shunt fraction during one-lung ventilation compared with volatile anesthetics and can be used safely during OLV because PaO2 increased after the application of 4 cm of PEEP during prop ofol anesthesia, and Qs/Qt decreased significantly after the conversion from inhaled anesthetic to propofol anesthesia.

NOC, a nitric-oxide-releasing compound, induces dose dependent apoptosis in macrophages.
NOC proved to be a convenient and useful tool for investigation of apoptosis related to NO and the amount of NO required to induce apoptosis in more than half of macrophages exposed was 100 times larger than that for endogenous NO-induced apoptosis. Expand
Gabexate mesilate (FOY) therapy of disseminated intravascular coagulation due to sepsis
It is concluded that FOy can be used as effectively as heparin for the treatment of DIC, and that FOY therapy is superior to heparIn therapy in DIC associated with decreased antithrombin-III. Expand
The solubility of volatile anaesthetics in water at 25.0°C using 19F NMR spectroscopy
Abstract Anaesthetic concentration is very important for the quantitative treatment of anaesthesia theory. Traditionally concentration values have been derived from the water/gas partitionExpand
Changes of Electroencephalographic Bicoherence during Isoflurane Anesthesia Combined with Epidural Anesthesia
Changes in the height of two electroencephalographic bicoherence peaks correlated well with isoflurane concentration, and this peak slightly decreased in a light anesthetic state. Expand
Fucoidin, a potent inhibitor of leukocyte rolling, prevents neutrophil influx into phorbol-ester-induced inflammatory sites in rabbit lungs.
The inhibition of leukocyte rolling may be a primary function of fucoidin, which leads to a reduction of neutrophil accumulation at inflammatory sites, which may be beneficial for attenuating neutrophIL-mediated tissue injury. Expand
Epidural Lidocaine Delays Arousal from Isoflurane Anesthesia
It is concluded that analgesia produced by epidural lidocane delays arousal from isoflurane anesthesia, and lidocaine plasma levels are shown to be too low to cause any sedative effect, thus suggesting that postoperative pain may cause significantly faster arousal from anesthesia. Expand
